Chicago Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Inconspicuously Strong Bonded White Fillings
Bonding or composite dental bonding is a conservative way to repair slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth. Kopp Dental And Associates Chicago provides Chicago area cosmetic dentistry in Elmhurst that takes bonding seriously, by offering state-of-the-art materials that will best serve you. Dental bonding is a white filling placed on your tooth to improve its appearance. Just like porcelain veneers, the filling “bonds” with your tooth, while the tooth-colored material closely matches your natural teeth. Bonding is less expensive, yet slightly less durable than other cosmetic treatments and is usually completed in one visit. If you experience a chip or stain, contact your dentist, and it can generally be remedied in one visit.

If you want to repair a chipped, fractured, or decayed tooth, or you wish to close the space between your teeth or alter the shape or appearance then teeth bonding might be an option for you. White or tooth-colored composite fillings offer natural appearance, a near perfect color match and increased stability. Composite fillings are preferred by many patients for their cosmetic dentistry near Chicago because white blends in much better than dark amalgam. Composite fillings can be used on front and back teeth depending on the location and extent of tooth decay.

Teeth bonding in Chicago involves a procedure where a resin material, or plastic, is matched to the color of your teeth then applied and hardened with an ultraviolet light or laser in order to “bond” the material to your tooth. Minimal preparation is required for this procedure and anesthesia is often unnecessary. Ceramic and plastic compounds in composite fillings, also called composite resins, mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Composite resins are usually a bit more costly than the older silver amalgam fillings, but vast research supports composite fillings over mercury amalgam fillings.
Dental Bonding Process
To begin the process, your dentist will match the color of your teeth using a shade guide to choose the color of the composite resin that will be bonded to your tooth. This resin is then applied to the tooth where it will be sculpted, and smoothed. After this process is complete the material is bonded using a special light then trimmed and polished to match the rest of the tooth’s surface. This whole procedure requires only 30 minutes-2 hours to complete depending on shade and number of teeth.
Dental bonding is of composite resin is one of the most time and cost efficient aesthetic procedures that Kopp Dental performs. In comparison to veneers or crowns, bonding materials are not manufactured in a lab and can typically be completed in only one office visit. However, even though the teeth bonding material is quite stain resistant, it doesn’t resist stains as well as crowns might. The bonding material may also not last quite as long since they are not as strong as some other procedures such as fillings, veneers, or crowns. For this reason, bonding is often best used for small cosmetic changes.
Risks In Teeth Bonding Chicago
Good oral hygiene practices is all that is required for bonded teeth. Bonding can chip, so it is important to refrain from chewing on pens, biting your nails, or chewing on any other hard objects. Your oral habits, along with how much bonding was completed, will affect the lifespan of the bonding. It typically lasts approximately 3-10 years before requiring replacement or touch up.
